The music video for Taylor Swift’s new single ‘ME!’ is a candy-colored spectacle. And while we can’t all dance on her rainbow cobblestones, we can at least ogle her living room furniture.
The opening scene of the video, which dropped on Thursday at midnight takes place in a moody teal apartment, in which Swift, 29, and Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie, 32, who features on the song, are having a heated debate in French. Yes, in front of their young cat daughters!
And while the dramatic exchange may be the focus, the stylized interior is worth a second look. In particular, Swift and Urie’s acrylic-and-brass coffee table. It’s actually a pair of matching square pieces: Jonathan Adler’s Jacques cocktail table (an appropriate name given the video’s Parisian setting).
Adler describes the Jacques collection as “the perfect blend of simplicity and glamour, modern and traditional” and this item in particular as a “big presence” that’s “weightlessly transparent.” You know, like a giant iridescent butterfly chrysalis or rainbow rain.
All that glamour comes with a celeb-worthy price tag, however. The Jacques cocktail table goes for $1,450 each.
Another piece by Adler — who’s known for his colorful, irreverent designs, often with midcentury modern influences — appears behind Urie toward the end of the fight scene.
The Reform credenza is a wood storage piece with a hand-hammered brass front and legs. And while it’s not what most think of as classically French in style, it does have ties to the country: It was inspired in part by Le Corbusier, a French-Swiss designer and architect whose unusual Notre Dame du Haut chapel in Ronchamp, France, is an icon of modern design.
The piece is incredibly labor intensive to produce, according to Adler’s site. It takes eight to twelve hours to make each door. And the price reflects that: $6,500.
Swift’s “ME!” apartment isn’t just loaded with enviable design details — it’s also full of easter eggs.
A photo of the Dixie Chicks on the wall has led fans to believe she might have a collaboration with the country trio on her upcoming album. A Christmas tree in the corner may be a nod to Swift’s childhood home on a Christmas tree farm. And of course her two cats, Meredith and Olivia make a cameo on the couch.
The song’s release came just hours after she revealed the single’s title to Robin Roberts on ABC during the NFL Draft. The superstar opened up about her new music live from a rooftop in the middle of her beloved Nashville.
“‘ME!’ is a song about embracing your individuality and really celebrating it and owning it,” the songstress explained to Roberts.
“With a pop song, we have an ability to get a melody stuck in people’s heads and I just want it to be one that makes them feel better about themselves.”
